Actually I’ve been back since Monday night but getting back into the swing of things only just as of five minutes ago. I let the girls play hookey from school Monday (shhhhh) and Kristen had a project due Tuesday, and then you add onto that the after-vacation laundry and shopping and, well, you get the picture.
The beach was beeyooootiful, though, and I did not want to leave. I was concerned that it might be a little chilly for my taste, but it was actually kind of perfect. The temps were in the low 80′s, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky the entire time, and the water was clear, calm and blue. Perfection! I was very close to doing an internet search on squatters rights, people.
The girls had a blast; there was paddleboarding:
and sand crabbing:
and then on our last day I forced everyone into cute clothes and took out the fancypants camera for some beach shots:
Thank you, random lady on the beach, for taking this one.
Me: Act like you're having fun. Anna: If we were having fun we wouldn't be holding hands.
Me and my girls:
I forgot I was wearing my frickinfrackin sunglasses!
Me and the mister:
Other random shots that I love, for those of you who don’t already feel like you’re being forced to watch someone’s old home movies:
- My taters look huge in this one. : /
I want to go back! Gah, I’m so angry at being poor and not rich right now!
Continuing the theme of getting back to reality, I think I’m going to start the Jamie Eason LiveFit 12 week trainer because, uh…well, if you haven’t noticed I’ve not exactly been making my three workout a week minimum, and in some of the pictures from the vacay you can kind of tell. And no, you will not be seeing those pictures on this blog. I like to only post the flattering ones to give you the false impression that I’m in better shape than I actually am. Heheheh.
For those of you unfamiliar with Miss Eason, you can like her on Facebook and then check out her plan and some great recipes and advice in her notes section. I will be starting as soon as Seth recovers from the strained back he got from
picking up a chair cusion at the beach house wrestling a sand shark with his bare hands. I’ll keep you posted, but by the looks of things (and by things I mean Jamie’s bod), I think I’m going to like the results if I stick to it!
